Students on whom a disciplinary action has been initiated for ‘Academic Misconduct’ are also not eligible to apply for the examinations, without the explicit permission of the concerned Authority (Dean/ Registrar). Teaching/Learning Methodology The following pedagogy methods shall be employed for effective student engagement & curricular delivery. Didactic lectures Formal lectures would be for only one third of the total teaching hours. Lecture topics would be published in the website, well in advance to enable the students to prepare and actively participate and interact during the lecture sessions. Teaching will be predominantly in small groups & student centric. Clinical/ Practical/ Demonstration classes Clinical/ Practical/ Demonstration classes are conducted appropriately to cover certain specific areas of the concerned discipline. The students are divided into small batches and training provided. The clinical training would be patient-based and will be held as bedside clinics. Small group teaching/ Tutorials Small group teaching/ tutorials would be organized by the faculty members for a small group of students at a time. These sessions would enable extensive interaction between the teacher and the taught, and will be based on clinically oriented problems. Student seminars This facet of teaching methodology definitely motivates students to learn the subject on their own. These sessions, moderated by a faculty member, ensure active preparation and participation from the students. Simultaneously, they help the learners to gain fair knowledge on the use of audio-visual aids, develop communication skills and boost their self confidence. Integrated teaching This method is useful in helping the students learn the subject in an integrated / holistic manner with the active involvement of and inputs from the faculty of those disciplines. Integrated teaching will be both horizontal and vertical. Problem Based Learning (PBL) Sessions PBL is a student centered pedagogy in which student learn about a concept through the experience of solving an open-ended problem. In this methodology, students learn the thinking and team work strategies and domain knowledge. Learning Management System (LMS) This is a software application for the administration, reporting and delivery of electronic education technology (also called e-learning). The ‘Ganesha Canvas’, the LMS of SBV, offers lessons, tutorials, tests, assignments, references and clinical problem solving exercises and more. Student Assessment Students at MGMCRI are under continuous Formative Assessment (PBL sessions, quizzes, assignments, clinical case discussions and others). Summative Assessment would also be held (Mid-term, End-of-term, send-up and ward-learning examinations) apart from the University examinations. The actual frequency and format of these examinations is left to the discretion of the Academic departments. However the tests / practical’s & ward-learning exams will be scheduled in a way to avoid clash of tests & overcrowding. The drawn up schedule will be published in the academic calendar. The student performance in the Summative Assessment would be used as the basis for calculating the Internal Assessment (IA) marks. The performance on these examinations would also be communicated to the parents and discussed with them in the Parents-Teachers Meetings. SBV University Examinations The University Examinations will be held for theory and practicals/ clinicals separately. Examinations will be conducted twice a year i.e. June/July/August and November/December/January. The exact dates for the examinations will be notified in the Academic Calendar.
